What we like about this stroller

Ease of use

With front wheel measuring 16″ and rear wheels 18″, this stroller literally glides with very little effort. It has a conveniently placed hand brake that makes this stroller save for jogging. Thule glide folds compactly and easily with one hand; a great feature that allows for multi-tasking.

Thule glide can easily convert into a travel system stroller with the use of proper car seat adapters and car seat.

The fixed front wheel is a great feature that allows for straight line motion which is very important during jogging or high speed running. It has a front wheel tracking adjustment knob that can be used to align the strollers.

Comfort

This stroller is very comfortable for both parents and babies. The seat is designed to recline to an almost horizontal position. This feature is great for those out door naps for baby and routine diaper changes.

Padding on the seat makes the ride very comfy for your little one and the vented top allows for cool refreshing breeze to flow in; so no over heating or sweating for junior.

The ergonomic handlebar is perfect because it assures comfort in terms of posture for parents of a wide range of heights. In fact, this is a great stroller for very tall parents.

Safety

Thule’s conveniently located hand brake is very effective at stopping the stroller during a run even on a steep road. The five point safety harness secures babies in the stroller comfortably.

The multi- position canopy helps protect junior from the elements, especially harmful UV radiation. It has a peak a boo window through which you can check on junior without alerting him/her.

Storage

The Thule glide stroller provides just enough storage for the important things you and the baby will need during the run. You have to remember that Thule glide is not designed for shopping, the concept here is ‘sport’  so it doesn’t have a big storage.

What are people saying?

Most people love their Thule glide so much. It seems like most of the people who bought it were aware of the fact that the front wheel is fixed. There are a few people who have had some issues with the alignment but most people say the alignment is great.

This stroller according to some people does not have enough cushioning but the majority of Amazon reviews is good for this stroller.

  1. Hi and thanks for the very important product review.
    Needless to say that almost everyone sooner or later came across strollers. The first time it was back in 1983 when my oldest daughter was born. Then, again and again. It is hard to imagine what will be when my youngest daughter delight me with grandkids.
    When it comes to THULE brand, only the best could be said. One of the best on the market at least for car trunks and bike holders.

    1. Hi Andre,

      Very true, Thule is known for making good quality products and this stroller is not an exception. Thule glide sport stroller is state of the art and can motivate just about anyone to become a runner.

      With features like rear wheel suspension, fixed front wheel, pneumatic 16″ rear tires and many others, it is no doubt it one of the best in the market.

  2. These strollers are great for runners wanting to include their little ones into their exercise and environment. I do park run on Saturdays and I see several of these on the 5k run route, they look great until the runner pushing it runs past me – highly embarrassing.
    Thule are great at making this type of product, I almost bought a roof box for the car a few years ago but it didn’t work out

    1. Hi Dave,
      It inspiring to see people using sport strollers. I use to think a stroller will slow one down and didn’t pay much attention to it until I saw a woman roll one slick stroller at high speed. I fell in love with sport strollers right there.

      Thule make great high quality products that last for a long time. Thule glide is no exception and is one of the best sport stroller out there.

    2. Hi Dave,
      Sport strollers are amazing. I always thought that all a stroller was good for was pushing the baby around on a paved road. I had a bad experience rolling a regular stroller on rough terrain so imagine my joy when I saw this woman rolling this slick sport stroller on a very rough terrain with so much ease and speed.

      It was love at first sight and I’m still in love with sport strollers. They are made with safety, comfort and functionality in mind.
      Avid runners can maintain the same level of exercise after pregnancy if they invest in a sport stroller. Plus they can take their little one along.

  3. I like how big the wheels are on this stroller. I always wanted a stroller like this with my babies, but I could never afford it. Now my babies are all older and don’t need a stroller anymore. My friend has a jogging stroller much like the one in this review, and it is a breeze to push. Even if you are not a jogger, a jogging stroller is nice to have. They are easier to push than strollers with 4 plastic wheels and they are nice for taking on trails. I would recommend one to anyone looking to buy a stroller. I just wanted to let you know, it is really hard to read your amazon reviews, the writing is soooo tiny. Before you take your screen shot, enlarge the letters on the page by clicking ctrl and +. This will make all the text bigger and then you take your screen shot.

    1. Thanks Andrea,

      For the tip on taking good screen shots; I’ll make sure to use it next time. You’re right, even if you are not a jogger, a jogging stroller is good to have because of the ease with which they roll.

      However, a jogging stroller with a swiveling front wheel is recommended for people who don’t jog often and will use it for running errands around town more.

      For the person who jogs moderately and want to use their stroller for shopping too, one with a swiveling locking front wheel is recommended.

      The fixed front wheel stroller is recommended for the avid jogger because these strollers are more stable and safe for high speed runs.

  4. Wonderful that you care about babies for us to have a happy family.am having a baby girl and i was confused of the sport stroller that i will buy for her, which is strong have extra benefits that profit that protects the baby.
    Now i got the right information.
    All the best
    Jose
